Did have a vague uptrendy feel on DAX, if I'd of held be +60 area, so weeks wages, hmmm, problem is every time I try to hold I get bit well most.

Chart attached, first trade I took and promptly got out off being a WUSS.

2nd was hard to call live, trend wasn't definate at that stage.

The rest, buy low of the inner yellow range, I'd of been up for 60-70pips on the table there, weeks wage easy as


US had a QUICK move, off the 100ema nearing Y-1, then not really enough in it allowing for huge spread.

Telling clients, Wednesday on I'm on holiday!! sooner I hit my 20K target sooner I can tell them to swivel although don't think I'm going to last that long some how! LOL

* occasionally, I'll remember to attach the chart LOL

Bored, pulling some stat's from my account :-


Last 2 months :-

Trading at 63% win rate, not so shabby!!

Total Trades = 38

Average Profit Pips = 9.6

Average Loss Pips = 10

Profit of 67 pips, so 1 weeks wage in 2 months, not so great.


Ofcourse I was -8 pips on 12th Jun, so if I run the numbers from that date it's :-


Trading at 71% win rate, not so shabby!!

Total Trades = 20

Average Profit Pips = 10.7

Average Loss Pips = 9

Profit of 96ish pips, so 1 weeks wage in 1 month, better, basically month 1 was break even really

Only 2 trades on latest revision of method, 2 for 2 and 20pips so far, so give me a month or 2 and we'll see how that's stocking up.

Remember, Method kinda stopped working so I've been tweaking, hence stuck for a few months around the same level, currently 5 pips from 30/6 highs.

Room for improvement yes, but good enough allowing for available time I think and illness / stress of recent.

Good enough to tell client to stick it, sadly not at this stage, but if I do, may have to struggle for a bit, but good odds I'll be fine.

Crunching the numbers, I want average 50pips per day, 4 days per week, DAX had that in it today, well it had 120pips in total available, so 50% efficency = 60pips so above average day.

Basically, need to stop making a profit, patting self on back then going back to sleep LOL



Get rich or die trying, nothing much inbetween will do!

I tripled the account Jan till March, before GBPAUD became basically hopeless and range bound and had to adapt and go else where for profits.

DAX and more range based in short.



I SO WANT TO TELL CLIENT TO STICK IT!!!


I have been working on this for nearly 10years maybe, SAD JUST SAD!!

In "Think and grow Rich" he tells the story of the miner who quit just a few pickax swings from one on the richest goldmines ever found in California. One cannot say how long the path is until victory is achieved. (In your case you have already achieved victory and it's only a question of redoing and doing it even better than before.)

I remember the goldmine story when I think about how others might see me. They can't see the progress the learning, the systems, they only see the outside - what is my financial situation is now, lifestyle now and not what it will be. They judge on the outside.

-the rough is but an illusion."

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Best never to get complacent the market has a way of humbling you pretty quickly

I've been from very little to huge account and via options back to zero over night.


Over slept, missed good entry's first lower white envelope good chop range.


Work . Rest of the week off hopefully but watch it fail
